Outstanding i love the smell of lemon grass .the aroma last a long time in the house
I threw out all the toxic can aerosols and now make my own fresh, healthy and better scented sprays. Lemon grass mixes with many oils...especially lavender and peppermint to make the Freshest bathroom spray and mixed with other oils with cleaning properties like tea tree and oregano oils to make a solution to freshen up the bathroom.At bedtime I use lemongrass and lavender with ylang-ylang in a spray bottle and freshen my linens for restful sleep.
